Hi @boots
Great to hear from you.

Oh my stars...do be careful with all that slippery stuff.
Wishing you a great week.:friends:

Very good update! Progress is being made.. the ice sounds intimidating, though. I'm sure you are being careful and doing a 4 hour milking shift sounds like huge progress.
Zaps and zingers are still common at 12 weeks, the best thing is to listen and step back when needed.
It's tempting to ignore them and push on but for the long range outlook, try to rest and not push yourself too hard.
It's a tough conversation to have with yourself.. believe me, I'm having it frequently, too!

So glad you're doing so well. :flwrysmile:

Sounds like you're recovering well. All of your described pains sound very familiar. I know dairy life is tough and it;s a 365 or 366 days a year job. The big no-no is falling down so be careful on the ice.

I am doing well, not getting as much walking in as I normally would, as I am not back milking every day, only filling in when needed. so I have been walking in my house, boring, but necessary. Occasionally my hip feels out of place somewhat when I walk, like my leg is crooked?? no pain but weird. I will ask my dr when I go back next month. Other than that things are well. I do get achy when I don't walk consistently. so I elevate and take hot baths.
thanks, Layla, for asking how I was doing and I will try to check in more often.

Thanks for your response! I'm happy to hear things are going pretty well for you. I get achy, or stiff if I'm inactive for too long also. I think age comes into play....we're in the same age range. It's easy to blame a lot on our hip, but I definitely feel our aging body is sometimes responsible for our aches and pains at this point in our lives. But, hey...I'll take it. Normally with a little movement all feels well. There is truth in the saying, Motion Is Lotion.
Have a great rest of the week and please don't be a stranger here. :wave:

Glad to hear you are doing well!

Occasionally my hip feels out of place somewhat when I walk, like my leg is crooked?? no pain but weird.
I get a strange sensation once in a blue moon, in my hip, with a small move. Other than that I do not know I am partially bionic. I just figure the muscles need to tighten around it a bit more, with time.

Let us know what your OS thinks.

Spring in a month! Be well.

Hi Boots! I wonder, if you need some help with your gait? As in some muscles may need some strengthening?
It's good to ask your OS about this, for now can you concentrate on ensuring that you are walking with a good, steady heel-toe stride.
As you step forward, you land on your heal and then roll forward onto the ball of your foot then using your toes to press through and forward.

It's great to hear from you!!
